of the united states. it made us proud as americans to know that those prejudices that we've had in the past are falling away. >> beyond some of the more personal areas, we sat down at campaign headquarters the next morning for more detailed discussion about where governor romney stands on the key issues of the campaign. so governor, we talked last night about jobs and the economy and also the debt. i want to begin there. you've called the debt and our deficit a moral crisis and yet in addition to extending the bush tax cuts you want to cut tax rates an additional 20%. you've rejected a 10-1 spending ratio when it comes to spending to increasing taxes. and yet you want to balance the budget. the math simply doesn't add up, does it? >> actually it does. five different economic studies including one at harvard, princeton, aei and a couple at the "wall street journal" all show that if we bring down our o top rates and go across the board, bring down rates for everyone in america, but also limit deductions and exemptions for people at the high end, you can keep the progressivity in the code, rem

of the united states in the air. >> yes. >> a funny moment. we can show you the picture, we have the tape. there is the president basically scott van duzer, the pizza shop owner was bench pressing the president of the united states. everyone seemed to be enjoying it. what was the reaction of the secret service? >> it was a light, fun moment and the pizza owner was just so -- was so excitesd for the president to be there. they had a good back and forth about, you know, the president teased him about weight lifting and if i eat your pizza will that make me look like you. this is the reason why the president loves doing these local stops. we do them on almost every trip. he has these authentic conversations with people and he talks about them for days and weeks afterwards. >> and the pizza shop owner, who by the way is also involved in a blood drive, a blood donor drive, has been recognized by the white house, but he was on with chris jansing. play a little bit of that. >> when he came in, he busted through my front door and said where's scott. interest that moment on, it seemed like he was

for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,

challenge the united states faces is shaping iran's choices in the world. that's not going to come from sanctions. it's not going to come from bombing them. it's showing that you can sculpt the international system. part of that means moving russia, moving china. with russia what you have is a resurgent national, almost in their own terms a reaganesque moment where they've decided to use syria and some of these other points in the world to show their own people for domestic reasons that they can stand tough against the united states. that's a problem for us. >> you know, roger, when you say romney sort of stumbled into them, you know, maybe they're not the number one geopolitical threat to the united states but they're a geopolitical rival. >> they're a big rival. >> they're a rival, partner, adversary. >> everything. >> in a weird way we got them in the wto. that's a partnership. >> exactly. >> they're basically facing us down in every major foreign policy. >> the reality of foreign policy is you do not have a single issue drives with a particular country. there are a multitude of issu

with plots to get into the united states and what's more, is that they're not just looking for small attacks, they are looking to cause catastrophic damage to the united states' economy and u.s. in general. that's something we have to keep in mind. is the threat there? yeah, it's there. a lot less than what it was but it's there and we have to remain vigilant. >> evan coleman, nbc terrorism analyst, thank you for your insight. >> that's going to wrap things up for me. stay with msnbc tomorrow for special coverage of the 9/11 terror attacks. "now with alex wagner" is coming up. >> governor mitt romney's map quest while president obama gets polling and fund-raising bumps team romney concedes a narrowing path to the white house. we will crunch numbers with peter hart, plus the romney ticket spends the weekend focusing on god while doing a loop de loop on budget policy. is this election still just about the economy? and we're going inside the victory lap. we'll ask slate's sasha issenberg about his book and the science of winning in a campaign. all of that when "now" starts in a mere 180 seconds

some guy president of the united states? is it. there's a reason obama got a bounce and romney did a thud. one guy people really love in charlotte giving the speeches of their lives, bill and michelle and deval patrick and castro. remember what romney got? chris christie up there giving testimonials to themselves. they barely got around to paying for their supper they were so full of themselves. romney has had two chippies going over to get acquainted with the brits and going to tampa to get the kudos. in both cases he ended up laying more eggs than the easter bunny but people like the easter bu y bunny. joining me is howard fineman and jim vandehei. it seems to me what happened the last two weeks was patently obvious. within convention worked, one didn't. one was sweet, one was sour. one you felt the vibes of happiness. the other one was you felt something but it was usually hatred of the president. >> yeah. well, chris, i spent every evening on the floor of the convention at both conventions, and at the republican convention there was a dutiful feel to it, and as you said, a lot

become president of the united states, i will not take god out of my heart. i will not take god out of the public square and i will not take it out of the platform on my party. >> i will not take god out of my heart? okay. okay. but surely the mr. fix it gave his vision on the economy. >> i will not take god out of the name of our platform. >> i will not take god off our coins and i will not take god out of my heart. we're a nation bestowed by god. we believe in a nation under god, a nation indivisible and we, the american people, are given our rights not by government but by god himself. >> he won't take god out of his heart and did i miss something? white house press secretary jay carney said, quote, the president believes as much that god should be taken off a coin as he does that aliens will attack florida. it's an absurd question to be raised. but there is a reason mr. economy is now mr. god. he needs the evangelical base. over the weekend, governor romney had a private meeting with the far right televangelist who also showed up at one of his rallies and last week we had steven

're going to be president of the united states. listen, ann romney is a very sincere and wonderful person. i have no doubt that mitt romney is a good person. but in terms of being a president, based on the policies that they've laid forward, based on what he said he will do and then how they've changed their position, or etch-i-sketched it away, he has to say what he will actually stand for. pointed out by his own opponent saying nobody knows what he stands for. i think ann romney does as best she can to warm him up, but it's not a question of warmth. it's a question of specificity. on this question, as it relates to not burdening the middle class more and getting rid of some of the very popular things that are so important, like mortgage deduction and child tax credits. those impact people directly. >> let me ask you about what congress can and should be doing. big issues facing you now, funding the government past september 30th, the farm bill, the fiscal cliff. what happens if the election passes and nothing gets done? how do you make this work? >> that has been the ploy of the republican

as the united states prepares to commemorate 9/11 and as the war in afghanistan is an issue in the presidential race. joining me now is evan coleman. we say it's an issue in the presidential race. actually, you know the headline out of the past two weeks. mitt romney did not mention afghanistan in his big speech. his people said he gave the speech the day before right before that. with that said, are you surprised we're not talking about afghanistan more as it relates to it? >> i'm not. it's politically unpopular. no candidate wants to get up and say, i'm very aggressive in favor of a continued presence in afghanistan. nobody wants to say that. mitt romney is smart enough to understand that. >> let me talk about the prisba prison. how do we process this? >> we were what happened to abu ghraib in baghdad. it's not good to have prisons in foreign countries. the problem is this. number one, the afghan government has a terrible record in terms of keeping control of the prisons. >> there have been breakouts. >> huge breakouts back a few years ago in kandahar, someone blew a hole in the side of the p
